I started teaching piano over 30 years ago. I just had one year of lessons, when
I started teaching my own students. I was scared to reveal that to my teacher, but
he was very supportive. So we spend a lot of time talking about teaching music.
While I was studying music at the University of Münster (Germany), I got into composing,
took lessons in composing and later won a 2nd prize in a composition competition
for classical orchestra.
I played in Big Bands; Brass Bands and a marching Band. I arranged and composed
for all of those Bands and conducted them as well. I also sang in Choirs as well
as conducting and accompanying them.
